The Compound designed by Javelin Block was a Multi RIBA award winning restoration project – a 10,000 sq. ft former textile factory converted into a multifunction creative space used by some of the leading players in the film, music and media industries. Features include bridges, balconies, mezzanine floors, a 25 seat cinema, speakeasy bar, art studio and three self-contained living spaces across multiple levels. Photography by Javelin Block.
Penthouse S is a project designed by destilat. A building task within a complex architectural structure: pigeons once perched on the balcony of what is now a luxurious penthouse with a view of Linz’s historical old town. In planning the two-story loft, greatestcare was given to setting generous lines of sight. Selective views and vistas bring a sense of vastness to the space.
Yu House is a project designed by Ganna Design. “Close your eyes, stretch your arms, and feel the wind blow. Like the wind, the house owner of this projects is yearning for an unrestrained life, spending much time flying in the sky. But there is always a moment feel tired, miss the taste of home, and want to feel the wind blowing in the hometown.”
The “Haus K” project designed by desilat comprises the replanning of a building that our client bought as a shell structure. Its extraordinary location on Schlossberg in Krems (Austria) makes this project a crowning jewel with a view across the valley of the river Danube and the abbey of Göttweig to the south and the vineyards of Krems to the north.
